The Winter Palace is undoubtedly the most famous building of imperial St. Petersburg, not only as the residence of the Tsars and the backdrop for the 1905 and 1917 Revolutions but also as the home of the Hermitage.
The State Hermitage Museum is a museum of art and culture and the second largest museum in the world. If you spend just one minute to see each item within the museum you will need 5.5 years to finish the entire inspection. Originally the Hermitage was a private collection of 200 canvases owned by Catherine The Great. The interiors of the Palace themselves impress greatly. The Hermitage collection includes two paintings by Leonardo da Vinci and a sculpture by Michelangelo, which can be found nowhere else in Russia, as well as the largest collection of Rembrandt's paintings outside Netherlands.
The expositions of the State Hermitage Museum are also located in the General Staff, the Winter Palace of Peter I, Menshikov Palace and the Museum of the Imperial Porcelain Factory, Staraya Derevnya Restoration and Storage Centre.
